Happening in Tokyo

  • You’ll want to hit Ikebukuro for the 6th annual “Kappa Ten” (Kappa Exhibition) at the Artist Garden gallery (July 10-22). As Matt Alt describes it, “it’s a celebration of everyone’s favorite cucumber-eatin’, sumo-wrestlin’, anus-attackin’, water-dwellin’ yokai from Japanese folklore,” and will include artwork from more than twenty artists. Matt’s Yokai Attack! book will also be sold there. An opening reception takes place this Saturday (July 12), from 17:00 to 18:00.
